Cancelling my PledgeMusic campaign

Dear supporters,

I am writing to share the unfortunate decision I’ve made to cancel this campaign with PledgeMusic. Since the project was successfully funded and closed over a month ago, I have yet to receive the money you so kindly pledged. They have offered partial payment, but this will not allow us to fund production of the EP and items we promised. However, if we cancel, their terms and conditions state that they are obliged to refund you (https://www.pledgemusic.com/site/terms).

junk-E-cat started from zero with just a crazy idea, and it’s you — the supportive fans — who have transformed this project into the reality it is — and will be. It was a very tough choice to make, but we don’t want to jeopardize your trust or our financial situation (any of ours)! My team and I are working to find another way to finish and deliver the music to you in the near future.

Thank you so much for believing so much in what I do.

PledgeMusic - payment situation

Dear Pledgers

I hope you had a great start to the new year. Thank you for your support and your patience.

This is an update to let you know that I am amongst the many artists who haven’t received any of the funds kind people like you have pledged. An official statement was published by the PledgeMusic team:

https://www.pledgemusic.com/blog/pledgemusic-payment-statement

My team and I have been waiting for the first instalment for more than a month and due to this delay, we have not been able to deliver the tracks nor start the production of the items as promised.

We have asked the PledgeMusic team to transfer the due funds to us by January 30th. We will be keeping you updated with the situation as soon as we know more.

I can’t wait to share my music with you!

Thanks so much for understanding!

We made it!!!

Hi everyone,

First of all, thank you SO MUCH for your support. Working on this EP from scratch has been a really incredible experience. Like all good creative journeys, it’s taking longer than I thought. I’m so sorry about that but I knew you’d all understand that the end result needs to be the very best I can do and I wouldn’t want you to have anything less!

I’m so excited to say that we have the final mixes in and the music is now ready to go to the mastering studio. After that, we’ll be able to release it digitally exclusively for all of you to hear!

There are more steps to take before I can send out the physical CDs and Vinyl. Like sending the disk image to the manufacturer to create the CD, and lacquering the masters for the vinyl. I anticipate manufacturing to be complete in spring 2019 and will keep you updated along the way.
I can’t wait to hold my first EP in my hands and send it and share it with all of you.

Again – I cannot say how thankful I am for your support. Have a wonderful holiday season and I look forward to giving you the next news in the New Year!

<3
